Peter Comiskey, Executive Director of MUZEO, gave a very interesting tralk about the new museum in Anaheim which is located at 241 S. Anaheim Blvd., Suite 501. He gave credit to Harry Sidhu, Anaheim Councilman, for being a driving force in the expansion of the museum. One goal is to preserve local history but it is much morre than that. And, it is not just a natural history museum nor just a science museum. The museum has the ability to take in any exhibition from anywhere in the world. They are very flexible in buildings, programs  and schedules. Exhibitions will change every 3 months. People will want to come back because it will constantly be changing. A few examples of what is coming are:
- How to make a Monster
- Jane Goodall’s Chimpanzies
- Chocolate
- Frogs
- Cheech Marin’s large collection of Chicano Art

Prez Tom closed the meeting at 1:30 p.m.
